What a surprise this was

Great food and a great view of the beach. the food was a bit expensive, but about what I would expect from this location and area. It has an outdoor patio and it is right by the beach for people watching.

We had two fantastic dinners here. Inside or patio seating. The chicken and lamb kabobs were excellent (a fantastic garlic dip...delicious salad and ample pilaf come with). The service was excellent. The prices are very reasonable. Go to the beach just south of the restaurant---watch the sunset---and then walk back to The Armenian Cafe for dinner. Friday and Saturday nights... More

Our family was strolling around Carlsbad looking for a place to eat dinner and stumbled on this place. We like Mediterranean types of food so gave this place a try. We were seated on the patio and served by Al who was very friendly and fast. Food was tasty with the price not too bad for dinner. Portions were good... More

By accident we came across with this restaurant while we are looking for a restaurant to have a lunch. The place is a medium type of restaurant walking closer to the beach. The prices of variety of foods to order are reasonable. With a group of 4 excluding an infant we ordered different kind of foods that suited our liking... More

This is my second time to The Armenian Café and both visits have been great. The staff is very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The service is prompt and the view from the patio is of Carlsbad Blvd overlooking the beach. It is becoming a habit to cruise the streets on my bike on weekends and stop there for a late... More

Six of us sat outside on a very cool evening in February. The spunky and cute waitress turned on some of the gas heaters for us. The lamb shish-kebob was very tasty, the lemon chicken not so. An entertaining belly dancer was enjoyed by all.

This is an unusual little restaurant specializing in food from the Eastern European country of Armenia. We visited it on a quiet Friday afternoon, and got prompt, friendly service, even though our waiter said he was Mexican, not Armenian😄 That was a nice piece of humor that added to our enjoyment. Stop in and try it's!

We ate here twice last weekend, once for breakfast and once for dinner. The food was delicious and authentic -- loved the chicken souvlaki and breakfast potatoes! The atmosphere is homey, the service friendly and the prices reasonable. We will definitely be back!

The food, service and outdoor seating is great. I have been there at least 20 times and the food is consistently good. I don't recommend sitting indoors as it's a little stuffy.
